Lot 10 - Fiddlerontheroof (IRE)

Purchaser: Doyle/Tizzard.
Price: £200,000
Bumper win

Review: The ultra consistent Fiddlerontheroof has progressed extremely well over his three Bumper starts to date under young rider Harry Swan.  Having only been beaten a combined 2 1/4 lengths when placed second & third in Bumpers either side of Christmas, the son of Stowaway produced an eyecatching performance to beat The Big Getaway at Navan on his latest start galloping all the way through the line.  The Racing Post commented after the race 'He had chased home Run Wild Fred on his previous outing and took another step forward here. It was a well-judged ride from his young rider and, given where he resides, there is no way we have seen the best of him yet. He's very promising and will improve for further'.
